IN THE GALLERY: Foreign Objects


Badra Aji

20 Jul - 13 Aug 2022

‘Foreign Objects’ is a new series of visual poetry by Badra Aji. Using drawing, video, and magical realism, Aji draws from his personal experiences of migrating to Australia and finding poetic resonance in things that are displaced. For Aji, his works are the tangible artifacts from these experiences; drawings of daily objects, personal portraits, and museum objects are used to investigate our perceived notion of normalcy. Cryptic and highly personal, ‘Foreign Objects’ puts the viewers on the outside and presents a commentary on the white beauty standard.
